Image To ZX Spec 1.3.4 Released

posted by TecSoft

As a reminder, Image To ZX Spec is a multi core capable image and video converter that can produce vintage computer art images (jpeg/png) of any size and can even convert work to a real ZX Spectrum (or an emulator) as a slideshow or video. This is useful to create retro 8bit music videos, posters, tshirts, mock screenshots etc etc - you do not even need a Spectrum to use this program!

Version 1.3.4:

  • Updated for Java 7.
  • Added VLC compatible video importing option.
  • Added simultaneous video decode/spectrum encode.
  • Added new prefer detail setting improving output.
  • Added new Sierra error diffusion option.
  • Added automatic preference saving.
  • Added dynamic memory allocation (grabs as much free as possible).
  • Added conversion cancel button (finally!).
  • Removed some redundant localisation code.
  • English text and licenses changes.
  • 6Aug/13Off

    SpecBAS 0.780 Released

    Download it at the official site.


  • SCALE to PRINT and TEXT. PRINT SCALE 2,2;"Hi!" will display 2x text size. SCALE 2,3 will do 2x width and 3x height
  • MATRIX maths with the MAT command from the original Dartmouth spec. Add, sub, mul, scale, inversion, identities etc
  • BIN from Sinclair BASIC makes an entrance. Pointless (use the % symbol to denote binary) but included for completeness
  • Dynamic array allocation - DIM a() - note the empty brackets, then just use it. Elements are added as they are written to the array in the positions you choose
  • Factorial operator - PRINT 3! displays 6. High priority. PRINT 2+3! shows 8, as does PRINT 3!+2
  • LCM(a,b) and GCD(a,b) functions - Lowest common multiple and greatest common divisor.
